#2432136 Blackhawks selling melted ice from Finals

They will probably make millions off of all the bandwagon fans that are too stupid to realize that this is not something a real team does.

Babs: "Sheesh."


#2422487 17yr old hockey player charged for on-ice assault.

Posted by FlashyG on 26 June 2013 - 04:22 PM

School of thought #1 is utterly idiotic.

 

Committing an unsportsmanlike penalty doesn't warrant what happened to that kid. He also didn't "not defend himself" he was never given any opportunity to.

 

Its not like the guy came up and challenged him to a fight, he threw a crosscheck to the side of the head of a defenceless player, then proceeded to give him a beating while he was already likely concussed. The guy was likely angry that his team was getting smoked and he was looking to exact some revenge from the first player who stepped out of line.

 

I think the charge was absolutely warranted and I don't think the league gave him even close to a sufficient punishment. That the Woodstock player was suspended at all is a joke, but I wouldn't be upset if the Brantford player was given a permanent ban from minor hockey.

 

There is no room in the game for that kind of cowardly garbage.




#2416074 Dastyuk Injured?

Posted by Kira on 30 May 2013 - 09:49 AM

It wouldn't surprise me, but if he was, it also doesn't surprise me that he didn't say a word about it.  It's in his nature to just play as long as he can and not complain.  He's got the whole summer to recuperate.  He's got nothing to be ashamed of, that's for sure.




#2394051 Eller Destroyed

Posted by toby91_ca on 02 May 2013 - 08:54 PM

Heave you ever been bodychecked that hard? You don't always have control as you are stunned, concussion or otherwise. He did look out before he hit the ice though. TSN guys clearly show why it is clean and a bogus call.

And the ref clearly made the call after the injury. No matter what that is not how you call a penalty. And the no hit league comments are warranted, there is far too many overreactions to physicality in the NHL right now. 

I have managed to avoid being hit hard most of my life, but yes, I've been hit fairly hard a few times and never have been stunned to the point I don't have control of my body to brace myself....that only comes from a head shot.  If you look at the replay from behind the Eller approaching the blueline.  His head is CLEARLY the first part of his body to take contact if you are looking to see an inch of movement on any part of his body.  At a minimum, it's not cut and dry, especially at full speed, so I'm not sure how you can get on the ref too much here.

 

Lastly, have you played any games in the NHL in the last couple years?  If not, I'd be interested in what you'd think if you went and played a couple weeks...would you come back thinking that there is not much hitting?



Looks like principle point of contact was to the head.  Sure, it was a suicide pass, but that doesn't give the guy free reign to hit to the head - that's flawed logic.   I was surprised to hear the CBC guys say it was clean.  I think they were focusing too much on the interference call, which they correctly pointed out was the wrong call.  If it is a hit to the head, and it sure looks like it, it seems completely suspendable.  If Ference gets one game for his love tap to Grabovski, this surely deserves something.

 

This wasn't a bodycheck, it was a shoulder to the head.

I saw it definitely as shoulder to head as well, but I guess I'm confused now after watching Fraser's analysis on TSN.  The head was hit first, with the shoulder, but not principle point of contact because there was enough of the rest of the body involved...confusing if you ask me.




#2347361 Nail Yakupov Goal Celebration.

Posted by wingsgirl001 on 27 January 2013 - 11:31 AM

Oh geez, what's the big deal? It was a huge goal, he's a kid and he was excited.

 

Nothing wrong with it IMO, as long as he doesn't do this every time he scores then why complain about it?




#2321061 Bouwmeester opinions? Potential trades? *merged*

Posted by stevkrause on 22 July 2012 - 10:42 PM

Just checked, $6.68 mill/yr ... makes Suter's $7.5 look like a steal. If he could play like a $6.68 mill/yr dman, maybe but as it stands now, no, thanks.

He can, and would, here... Florida, then Calgary... I think that's all that needs to be said...

He would thrive in the Wings system, and I would put money on it, that if he came here, he would have better numbers next year than Suter...

#2278919 Tortorella Slams Orpik, Crosby, Malkin,...

Posted by Firehawk on 06 April 2012 - 03:24 PM

I'll do it again...

Watch this:

"I don't know how Orpik doesn't get more suspension time." and "I hope Philly rams Crosby and knocks him out of the playoffs."

I don't like Crosby, never have. No I am not jealous, since I think Datsyuk is a better player. Crosby is on his last leg anyways, and Bettman, who has thrown everything the NHL has to offer behind Crosby, knows it. So, they'll do their best to protect him.

But, once you start having concussions, you're very likely to have more. Crosby's career is already in jeopardy and it won't take a dirty hit to knock him out.

This is what the league wanted by changing the rules and bringing in the instigator rule. Nobody to blame but themselves...

And the fact that you're wishing a potentially career ending and life changing injury on another human being doesn't even enter the equation?


#2273962 Needs to be said

Posted by kipwinger on 25 March 2012 - 09:36 PM

The sixth versus fourth place debate essentially revolves around whether or not you think the team is better served facing an easier opponent or playing at home in the first round. It's pretty hard to calculate either way. But the lower seed could be problematic after the first round don't you think?

The good news is there aren't enough Blue Jackets fans to stuff the ballots and vote 4 or 5 of their players into the game.

#1916456 Ovie Suspended

As much as I want to see iffy hits reined in, Ovie's hit didn't look all that bad to me. He hit him on his side, not his back.

About the Ovechkin suspension. Incoming wall of text.

I think it's fair. We all know if it was any other player he would have received more games. I understand and accept the fact that star players are more important to the game then 3rd-4th liners. I have no problems with Ovechkin only getting 2 games. Ovechkin is one of the greatest hockey talents ever, he needs to be on the ice scoring goals, not in the stands serving punishment for a borderline hit that ended someone's season. So from that aspect I see no problems on the severity, and I just hope Ovechkin can learn to focus his physical game and use better judgement in the future so he can avoid this. The NHL needs Ovechkin, but it cannot make specials rules it can only bend them.

The hit itself was bad, I don't think it was anything completely horrible, but it was quite apparent that Ovechkin had a lapse in judgment and if he happened to hit someone on the Red Wings there would be a lot less defense for him in this thread. I don't see how anyone can look at that hit and think that should be a acceptable part of the game. In a perfect world whether or not Brian Campbell was injured would not play a prominent role in the length and severity of the punishment, but that's not how life works. An incidental high stick still deserves 2 minutes, and even more if there is blood drawn, intention has little to do on the actually punishment. The outcome of the victim plays a role in the determination of punishment. Now if you want to debate that it shouldn't, it would be a whole different topic on how human society as a whole spanning from the court system, to everyday social situations(for a terrible and maybe sort of extreme example; we all pay more intention to a victim that was murdered, more then a victim that was just injured.)

Now about people that are complaining about consistency and Colin Campbell. Please take a step back and look at the situation from his shoes. What Cooke did certainly deserved a punishment, I think most sane people all agree on this notion. The sad truth of the matter is Campbell has no ground to suspend Cooke. What Cooke did, while absolutely malicious and dangerous, does not violate any rules that are currently instilled in the rule book. Everyone pointing to the "intent to injure" rule needs to understand that it's only enforced when the original play is actually illegal. That rule is not there to punish players for essentially hitting too hard. If that's how you want to interpret the rule you could look at Kronwall's hits, or almost every single one of Scott Steven's hits and attribute disciplinary action. The thing is unless the hit itself is written in the rule book as illegal you cannot enforce that particular "intent to injure" rule. Hopefully they can get the headshot/blindside hit defined and in the rule book as soon as possible, but you cannot just change the rule on the spot. It's not up to Campbell to make the rules. So for that I don't see how you can blame Campbell, when essentially he can only work with the rules he is given.

I hope I can actually get serious feedback from this post and not just "STFU CROSBYLVOER etc."
